Etude House I Need You Lemon Mask

So, this sheet mask is marketed as a brightening mask.

From the website: “This is a soothing type of cleansing foam that has aloe vera extract that soothes and irritates skin. The aloe vera extract is known for its excellent moisturizing and soothing capabilities.”

I think the website’s writers may have meant to type “soothes irritated skin” instead of what you read above.

In my post about the Rice mask, I didn’t get to snap a photo of what the mask looks like when it’s unfolded.

Here it is! This is the unfolded Lemon mask.

It smelled wonderful: just of lemons, and not too sweet or too artificial. It didn’t smell like real lemons, but more like a lemon cleanser.

I followed the instructions and left this on for 15 minutes. The residue left on my face was rubbed into my skin.

My face did look a little brighter and more refreshed after using this. My skin was super soft too. I think this kind of mask may need multiple uses (using a new mask every time) if you want to see real brightening results. That sort of thing takes time.

  1. Hmmm I love sheet masks but I don’t think this one is for me.

  3. Hah soothes and irritates skin. That doesn’t sound like fun lol. 🙂 I bet the lemon was quite refreshing.

  4. I agree, they probably meant something different than they said. But I don’t feel like this mask would be extremely soothing with all these citrus fruit extracts and he alcohol. Brightening, yes, but soothing? I wouldn’t want to put it on irritated skin.
